ARDMORE, Okla. — Producers can now easily access Oklahoma cattle auction data using two new web-based tools created by the Noble Research Institute's agriculture economics consultants and computing services team.
"We wanted to provide a way for producers to easily access Oklahoma cattle auction data and present it in a different format," said Jason Bradley, agricultural economics consultant. "Producers can see individual Oklahoma auction market reports as well as the state's combined average.
The two web tools are price slide and value of gain breakdowns, and auction market comparison charts. United States Department of Agriculture Ag Marketing Service market reports were used to collect the information from the seven reporting livestock auctions in Oklahoma: Ada, Apache, El Reno, McAlester, Oklahoma National, Tulsa and Woodward.
"Working toward providing producers with the tools and information that can be used to make timely management decisions, like determining when to buy or sell cattle, is one of the great things we do here at Noble," Bradley said. "This opens the door to many more things we can begin to do. We encourage users to give us feedback on these tools and others you would like to see next."
All the information is updated every evening to stay as up-to-date as possible. The dataset also provides producers the ability to look at historical conditions for each market. More information about the tools can be read in Bradley's Noble News and Views article. The web tools and information is publicly available at www.noble.org/ag/services/.

Noble Research Institute, LLC (www.noble.org) is an independent nonprofit agricultural research organization dedicated to delivering solutions to great agricultural challenges. Headquartered in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Noble’s goal is to achieve land stewardship for improved soil health in grazing animal production with lasting producer profitability. Achievement of this goal will be measured by farmers and ranchers profitably regenerating hundreds of millions of acres of U.S. grazing lands. Noble aims to remove, mitigate or help producers avoid the barriers that deter the lasting use of regenerative, profitable land management practices in grazing animal production.
Researchers, consultants, educators and ranch staff work together to give farmers and ranchers the skills and tools to regenerate the land in a profitable manner. Noble researchers and educators seek and deliver answers to producer questions concerning regenerative management of pasture and range environments, wildlife, pecan production, and livestock production. Regenerative management recognizes that each decision made on the ranch impacts the interactions of the soil, plants, water, animals and producers. Noble’s 14,000 acres of working ranch lands provide a living laboratory on which to demonstrate and practice regenerative principles and ideas to deliver value to farmers and ranchers across the U.S.
